Did the epidural make you DILUSIONAL?

for you ladies who had an epidural WITHOUT pitocin or any other drugs, did the epidural make you dilusional? this happened to me...i felt like i was really drunk, i was vomiting and i was saying things that didn't make any sense. Did this happen to you after your baby was born. I definitely do NOT want an epidural next time because of this experience

  • I had a c- section so i had to have one. I wasn't sick like you, but i felt drunk. Well i don't remember feeling that at the time but thinking back and looking at pictures i don't remember much. Kinda like a morning when you've had too much to drink. Bums me out cause that was supposed to be the best day, and it was. I just wish i could remember more of it.

  • I felt perfectly fine when I had my epidural. All it did for me was turn the pressure into pain. The oxygen mask they gave me while I was actually pushing her out made me feel a little loopy and light headed but thats it and right after I had her I felt fine (well as good as you can feel after pushing something the size of a watermelon out of a hole the size of a cantaloupe lol)

  • When you put narcotics into your system... who knows.
    I haven't had the epidural myself, but with others I've attended, they seemed tired and nauseous, but still coherent.
